Hi, everybody. Kristin is back! Her husband Rich returns! And George is still here. The conversation begins with a discussion about Art Spiegelman's Pulitzer Prize winning graphic novel Maus recently being removed from an eighth grade cirriculum in a Tennessee county. Then, we turn to Raina Telgemeier's young adult graphic novel Drama being removed, among other books, from some school libraries. This took us down a path more serious than that for which we are known. The topics are important and you get to be a fly on the wall as three friends have a frank heart to heart to heart chat. It's civil discourse at its best.

The second George Perez Celebration episode of The Daily Rios podcast (episode 543) is available now. Our cohost George joined this panel of fine folks to talk about what this iconic artist means to us. Subscribe to the show on your apps so you don't miss an episode.

Speaking of our cohost George, he has started using #my500comicgoal on Twitter to chronicle the comics and graphic novels he will read throughout 2022.
